Rekindle Trust in the Government

The biggest step Barack Obama could take in his first 100 days would be to rekindle some degree of trust in the government. The most profound way to do this would be to instigate clean election processes on the federal level. To begin to disconnect legislators from corporate contributions would eventually enable real change on the economy, health care, the environment and our endless military adventures. Imagine what it would feel like to believe the government was actually working for the ordinary people who fund it! Obama’s campaign put a down payment on that kind of future; now it’s time for the rest.
